Miracles do not, in fact, break the laws of nature. C. S. Lewis

The title of the post means that I finally found a job! After a year and 9 months of searching I am now working regular hours and loving it! As such I will be taking a 2 week break while my body and mind adjust to the new schedule. During that time I will be cooking and prepping new posts so I have a small stockpile of posts built up for times when I am working more overtime hours and less time to cook. I will be back to my regular 2 time a week posting on October 2nd. I love my blog, and sharing recipes with everyone and I promise you that I have some great recipes lined up to share when I get back. As always if you have a recipe you would like to see converted please send it to me and I will work it into the rotation. See you all soon!
